Waiting on Wednesday | Eleventh Edition


Hello, readers and followers! Happy Wednesday. Welcome. With another mid-week arrival, today we're joining the "Waiting On" fun with Can't Wait Wednesday. A meme Finding Wonderland occasionally takes part in.

Organized by my fabulous Bookstagram partner in crime (check out our September challenge)Tressa of Wishful Endings, here's another Can't Wait Wednesday



Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here to spotlight and talk about the books we're excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released as well. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. (Find out more here.)
______________________________

For today's meme, I'm featuring a book that doesn't release until 2018... but in my defense, the new year will be here before we know it. 

Today's focus takes us back to the 1940s and WWII. The novel is Sarah Sundin's upcoming release, which of course, sounds beautiful. If you enjoy historical fiction, Sarah write's fabulous stories that transport us to this tumultuous time. She does this in a realistic way while weaving some lighthearted antics and of course, always charming romances, into each story she pens. 

THE SEA BEFORE US
Publisher: Revell
Genre: Adult Fiction, Historical Fiction
Publication Date: February 2018

In 1944, American naval officer Lt. Wyatt Paxton arrives in London to prepare for the Allied invasion of France. He works closely with Dorothy Fairfax, a "Wren" in the Women's Royal Naval Service. Dorothy pieces together reconnaissance photographs with thousands of holiday snapshots of France--including those of her own family's summer home--in order to create accurate maps of Normandy. Maps that Wyatt will turn into naval bombardment plans.

As the two spend concentrated time together in the pressure cooker of war, their deepening friendship threatens to turn to love. Dorothy must resist its pull. Her bereaved father depends on her, and her heart already belongs to another man. Wyatt too has much to lose. The closer he gets to Dorothy, the more he fears his efforts to win the war will destroy everything she has ever loved.
The tense days leading up to the monumental D-Day landing blaze to life under Sarah Sundin's practiced pen with this powerful new series. - Amazon

  6. I've read three of Sarah Sundin's books and LOVED them. Need to read more! She's got such a great grasp of character development, emotional arcs, and the whole era of the 1940s. Love her books.

    2. You're welcome! Thanks for replying to my comment. I just realized I've read four of your works, not three -- I read your story in "Where Treetops Glisten" too! Such a fun collection, and I say with all honesty I liked yours best.

    3. I've read a few by Sarah too, Rachel and each one is lovely. I still have to read the final book in her last series, and I also recently collected her first series from Revell (good thing too because I think they're becoming tough to find), so I've got some good Sarah Sundin reading ahead. :)

      Ditto on everything you said. Her characterizations and storytelling is also top notch.

      Glad you visited, as always.
